Welcome Friends

Throughout the years, our alumni have played a tremendous part in the success and sustainability of our programs.  We will always be indebted to our community for helping us promote these special opportunities to today’s youth.  

We are committed to helping engage with students past, present, and future and hoping this will serve as a great resource to stay connected with one another moving forward.  

Let us remember how impactful this program was in our formative years and work together to make sure this program lasts forever.

Alumna Starts Life in Ireland

Ireland has become my home this past year and what a year it has been.  My journey started here at 17 with the ILE Program.  They say all roads lead to Ireland and for me this rings true.  If it was not for the ILE, I would have never met some of my nearest and dearest friends, eventually meeting the love of my life, and recently giving birth to my miracle Irish baby.  

As a teenager, you never picture what your life will be like in 20 years from a summer of a lifetime abroad.  I have lived, loved, and breathed the Irish air and now it is my new home.  Thank you so much to the ILE for giving me some of the biggest Irish blessings I could have every asked for in my life.

There is so much to discover in Ireland, that you might just discover yourself and your future.  -Katy Farrell O’Connor
